    Hi all im on the latest leak on my Z30 and I set my simple password last night and this morning I tried to input it and it is stuck on 6/10 ad says Enter "blackberry" but it does nothing after that.

    And when I wake the screen up is says the warning you have tried 5 times and after 10 times it will be wiped.

    what do I do?

    Unfortunately, if you can't get the password correct in the last 5 remaining attempts, your device will be wiped -- as if it was right out of the box. Hopefully you have a recent backup in Link that you can restore.

    Agreed. But at least it's the weekend.

    This happened to me before, on 10.3.1 if you mess up on the first trials and it asks you to enter "blackberry" then any attempts to to type the password don't input.
    I had to run an autoloader...

    Horrible bug if you ask me. Especially if someone picks up your phone when it has picture password on and they just start swiping away not knowing how it works.. then bam you're locked out of the phone..
    My cousin did that to me...

    Well mine was just numbers and for the life of me I could not remember it and it just got stuck at that point. At least I know now to use the autoloader and wipe and reload and reload my backup
